My dear Billy,
Almost each day is devoted to the celebration or commemoration of some event or other. Among the many that are being set aside for some particular activities these days and all through the year, there was the Family Day which is supposed to bring the family together.

God’s Invisible Hand

My dear Billy, Sorry for the breakdown! An assortment of health complications occurring simultaneously have been at the root of my absence from this column in the recent weeks.
My dear Billy,
There’s an old Hindi saying to the effect that in the house of God, justice may be delayed but never denied. The recent verdict of the Permanent Tribunal for the United Nations Convention on the Laws of the Sea over the Chagos issue has come to prove once again that justice is condemned to prevail sooner or later. In this case justice has been done after more than 50 years.

Fools rush in…

Don’t allow yourself to  be fooled by the above title, because I am not going to talk about the horde of hopefuls who are waiting to rush into the shoes of those fools who have been asked to “lev pake” after the last general elections.

Rodrigues, mon amour

The first time I went to Rodrigues was in August 1980. I stayed for a week.

Forty-seven years old

The current period of rainy season brings back to mind another spell of wet weather that held the country in its grips exactly 47 years ago, during the first fortnight of March 1968, when the country was preparing itself for the celebration of its independence.

Dear Shakespeare : All Angels’Day

We must admit that, next to God, we must be indebted to women, first for life itself, and then for making it worth having and living. Somebody very rightly observed that “Women are the poetry of the world in the same sense as the stars are the poetry of heaven: clear, light-giving, harmonious, they are the terrestrial planets that rule the destinies of mankind”.

Dear Shakespeare : Rodriguan Summer Dream

My dear Billy,
In your famous tragedy “Julius Caesar”, just after murdering the main protagonist, one of the murdering conspirators, Cassius, says: “How many ages hence \Shall this our lofty scene be acted over,\ In states unborn and accents yet unknown?”
My dear Billy,
The other day I told you that there were many people in the world who allowed their existence to become a long stretch of gnawing routine which ended only on the day of their death, or D-day. Such people are never known to take a holiday.
My dear Billy,
The President’s speech announcing Governments’ programme for the next five years has created a feel-good sentiment in the hearts of the population at large. The Prime Minister has expressed his appreciation after the reading of the Government’s programme.
